Palehound has released their latest single, ‘My Evil’.
The track is taken from their upcoming album, ‘Eye On The Bat’, set for release on 14th July. The track follows on from the lead single, ‘The Clutch,’ which was released in April.
“”My Evil” is about the extremely humbling experience of realizing that yes, you are the asshole,” explains El Kempner. “I found myself acting in ways I was ashamed of, and realizing how capable I was of hurting somebody when I was trying so hard not to. Sometimes when you try so hard to be a “good person” you’re actually swinging so far and recklessly that you make a full circle back to being a shithead. It can be very hard to forgive yourself, and this song is a portrait of that struggle for me.”
The track comes with a video that pays tribute to The Sopranos. “When I got the idea to make a video based on the intro credits of Tony driving through Jersey, I knew I had to do it with my friend Richard Orofino. He’s possibly even a bigger Sopranos fan than I am and he did an incredible job mapping out a lot of the original locations from the show, including Tony’s house that we see at the end of the video. This whole thing was super DIY, just me and Richard (and his camcorder) having the time of our lives and being embarrassing superfans. It’s not exactly shot for shot of the original but, to brag for a sec, I’m truly amazed at how close we were able to get it.”
